How to Rock the Green Eye Makeup Trend How to Rock the Green Eye Makeup Trend How to Rock the Green Eye Makeup Trend

Summer 2017 brought with it a variety of nature-inspired eye makeup trends. First came flower eyeliner, then came sunset statement eyes. Now, as summer turns to fall, we have green eye makeup. As the emerald green eye makeup trend begins to take over runways, social media feeds, and inspiration boards this fall, we think it’s pretty clear what color needs to be on our lids in the months to come. Richly pigmented green draws inspiration from nature to bring the lushness of greenery front and center. So, if you want to embrace the prettiest color of the moment, read on to discover our three favorite ways to rock green eye makeup.

Green Eye Makeup Idea #1: Graphic Emerald Eyeliner

Take a look around and you’ll notice one thing is true: Emerald is the new black. When it comes to lining your eyes in a super-trendy way, take a break from your beloved black eyeliner and reach for the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Wild Green instead to create one of the eye-catching looks below.

The dotted cat eye: To create this look, draw a traditional cat eye along your upper lash line using your green eyeliner. From there, use the pointed tip to draw evenly spaced dots along your lower lash line. If you want your green eye makeup look to have a more retro vibe, make your dots a bit larger.

The double-sided cat eye: Two is better than one in some cases—and when it comes to this calligraphy-inspired cat eye, that mantra definitely rings true. This green eye makeup look is all about extending to opposite ends of the eye for a look fit for an Egyptian queen. To create it, start by drawing on a classic cat eye with your green eyeliner. Next, move on to your lower lash line. Draw a super-fine line from the bridge of your nose up towards the inner corner of your eye extending halfway along your lower lid. Since this particular green eye makeup look takes a little practice to perfect, be sure to have a cotton swab and a bottle of the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types nearby to touch up any mistakes.

Green Eye Makeup Idea #2: Emerald Under-Eye

Among many other beauty trends that have emerged this year, one of our favorites happens to be upside down under-eye makeup. It’s characterized by the boldest part of your statement eye being on your lower lid. Put two trends together by pairing this eye makeup style with green eye shadow. Cover your upper lids with a neutral shadow followed by a swipe of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Golden Emerald along your lower lash line. You can keep the color tightlined or blend it out for a more ethereal finish. Top it off with a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara.

Green Eye Makeup Idea #3: Emerald Smoky Eye

Smoky eyes will forever hold a place in our hearts (and our makeup routine). For that reason, we love the look of an emerald-tinted smoky eye for a fresh take on this standard eye makeup style. To create this green eye makeup look, prime your lids with eye primer or a dab of concealer before using the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Dual Effects in Emerald Conquest to bring your smoky eye to life. The trick to creating a perfectly blended eye is to start with the lightest green shadow in the compact before layering the darker colors on in succession to build depth. Top it off with a dusting of the pearl shadow along your brow bone and inner corner to bring a pop of brightness to your otherwise dark look.

Now that you’re a master at using green eye makeup, try your hand at another color of the rainbow. Check out our article, How to Create a Trendy Peach Statement Eye, for a step-by-step tutorial.
